Open Day celebrates our built heritage by allowing visitors free access to fascinating properties that are either not usually open, or would normally charge an entrance fee. Organised by The National Trust for Jersey in association with English Heritage and kindly sponsored by Le Gallais, the event is part of the UK’s celebration of architecture, history and culture which will open thousands of buildings throughout the United Kingdom. Le Gallais sponsorship is extremely poignant this year as it is the Trust’s 75th Anniversary and back in 1936 Carlye Le Gallais was one of the founders of the Trust and responsible for gifting its first area of land in Vallée des Vaux. In Jersey the following properties will be opening their doors to the public on Saturday 10th September between 10am and 4pm:
